"Melanie is brilliant at making difficult information accessible and practical. Her seminars are fun; at the same time a truly valuable learning experience."

Mari O’Neill, Seattle, WA

"I use the dynamic assessment with almost every client as part of the evaluation and re-evaluation. The most compelling and exciting aspect is gaining further insight how the whole body is connected, increasing my skill on movement assessment, and integrating optimal movement through the whole body in treatment."
